Streaming Tips & Tricks[edit | edit source]

  • Give your PC a fresh reset.
  • Make sure your GPU drivers are updated.
  • Make sure your webcam is still straight and your microphone is on. Confirm webcam and microphone settings have not reset themselves.
  • Mute your mobile phone, or any other sound emitting device externally you don’t want interrupting you.
  • Check your PC for any sound-enabled software and mute ones you do not want emitting sound during a stream.
  • Make sure Dauntless is patched and working correctly.
  • Read the latest Dauntless Patch Notes for any changes.
  • Check Dauntless and your ISP maintenance times if there are any.
  • Confirm your upload bitrate, ingest server and resolution. Run a SpeedTest just in case there’s internet issues.
  • Make sure your audio is leveled correctly before you go live. The best way to do this is to do a test local record and play it back.
  • Test your stream alerts to make sure they are working correctly, if you’re using them.
  • Double-check your sources in your stream software to make sure they are locked, if they are lockable.
  • If you’re streaming for a while, don’t forget to stretch and have snacks/water prepared.
  • Make sure VODs are enabled, if you’re wanting to record a VOD.
  • Make sure Local Recording is on, if you want a copy of the broadcast on your computer afterwards.
  • Don’t forget to notify your community before you go live!
  • Make sure you’re registered as a streamer in the Unofficial Discord so when your stream goes live the bot there notifies the greater community that you’re ready to slay!
  • Be sure to tell your family and friends about your stream. Even if only a few of them watch, it really helps with discoverability when you’re just starting out.
  • Make friends with other Dauntless streamers - Growing a community is easier when everyone works and quests together!
  • Make it easy for your community to engage with you, give them opportunities to play with you on streams. Viewers are more likely to engage in a stronger way if they are more deeply involved.
